Posey (toe) is starting at catcher and batting fourth Tuesday against the Rockies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Posey is good to go after missing Sunday's contest with a toe injury. This issue was never thought to be anything overly serious. The All-Star backstop, who is slashing .313/.397/.454 with 12 homers in 130 games this season, with face German Marquez in his return to the lineup.
Posey, who is not in the lineup Sunday, is dealing with a minor toe injury, Andrew Baggarly of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Posey was withheld from the starting lineup Sunday after fouling a ball off his left big toe Saturday. Manager Bruce Bochy confirmed that the injury isn't overly serious, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports, so the star backstop will be listed as day-to-day moving forward. The Giants are off Monday, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Posey back in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies.
Posey is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Hitless in his last 10 at-bats, Posey will receive the afternoon off as the Giants close out their weekend series against the Diamondbacks. Nick Hundley will take over behind the plate and bat seventh in his stead.
Posey is in the lineup Friday against the White Sox. With the Giants playing in an American League ballpark, they'll be able to use Posey at the DH spot. Posey, who's hitting .435 with a 1.065 OPS over the last seven games, will look to continue his terrific performance at the plate when Lucas Giolito heads to the hill for Chicago on Friday night.
Posey (finger) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Posey was removed from Tuesday's game with an injured right finger/hand. The catcher underwent X-rays following his exit, which came back negative, but with a scheduled off-day Thursday, manager Bruce Bochy decided to give him Wednesday off to recover. He should be considered day-to-day prior to Friday's game against the White Sox, and he will likely spend a game or two as the DH during the weekend series. In his place, Nick Hundley draws the start for Wednesday's finale.
